Riassunto: Part Two Of Two Parts
Behind today's headlines of change lies Eternal Russia, the product of long centuries of autocracy, a millennium of Eastern Christianity, and the vastness of one of the largest nations on earth. EMPIRE OF THE CZAR, documenting the travel adventures of a French aristocrat a century and a half ago, reports vivid episodes and paints unforgettable portraits of Russians from the Czar and his fawning courtiers down to the drunken Cossacks and the sullen peasants. They were the Russia that had been there for centuries. Custine reveals a Russia strikingly similar to the Russia of today. The vivid sense of history he conveys helps us understand Churchill's aphorism "This is a puzzle, within a mystery, all wrapped in an enigma."
